My Droid X and Its Cheap Case

I don’t really do product reviews, but I’ve owned my Droid X for about a year now and for the last 6 months, it’s been protected by the Motorola MB810 Droid X Rubberized Shield Hard Case Black. This case has been flawless for my needs and has held up through all the stupid things I do with phones like drop them and let my 4 year old son play with them. It’s relatively easy to put on and remove for cleaning and doesn’t inhibit button pushing or increase the phone’s bulk.

If I don’t do product reviews, why am I mentioning it? Well, I brought it up because it only cost me $2.81 plus shipping. That’s not a typo. I looked all over Amazon for Droid X cases and the prices are all over the place. I finally landed on this one and thought that it was really too cheap to be true or any good. Now, many of you should rightfully point out that a phone that costs as much as a Droid X should have a case that is of comparable quality (and probably priced accordingly). It’s hard for me to argue this point except to say that this case has held up great for 6 months, and I could buy 10 of them for the price of 1 of the more expensive trendy cases like the OtterBox Defender Case which of course on some level I still covet.

What about you? Have you ever bought an expensive item and then tried to protect it using something cheap or better yet with something that MacGyver might come up with? I really am a sucker for anything Macgyver-like. How did it work out?
